I am with the Mayor on this issue, I believe it to be important for Alexandria..
But it’s up to you to decide.
Message from Mayor Roy:
Our City is at an important policy juncture. Attached are two items I humbly ask you to read. The executive summary should be read first—and is the shorter read of the two.
Tomorrow night at 5:00 p.m., the Council will consider the zoning of a critical catalytic project in S.P.A.R.C., again, and any support you may give, or dialogue on the subject matter, is appreciated. I was asked to veto the ordinance by council members who originally voted for the more restrictive zoning. Of the handful of people who spoke against the project, several contacted me to express support and that they felt they did not have the accurate picture of this project.
The reasons attached compel a serious read and discussion for our community if we are to move forward together.
It is my sincere wish, and I believe it possible, that the Council President will offer another amendment to allow the original ordinance to move forward and negate any need for a veto. In exchange, we will ensure, as was always the plan, that the commercial development drives this car.
Please respond to my economic development office at email@example.com, if you wish to…
Thank you for caring about Alexandria.
